About this location
The Lazio region
This is the cradle of occidental civilization and Christian culture, of lakes and legends, of thermal spas and history, of ancient roads and verdant hills. Lazio is a region of central Italy bordered by the Tyrrhenian Sea,traverse by the waters of the Tiber River and mainly characterized by hills and mountains, while it slopes down near the coast.
This region has different yet complementary features, unblemished sceneries and spectacular horizons among the towns. Visitors can enjoy incredibly beautiful views, like Villa Borghese in Rome, the Italian capital. Villa Borghese is the most famous city park for walking or cycling. It represents an unparalleled experience between art, containing the Borghese Gallery with its masterpieces, and the nature surrounding it, including lakes and ancient trees. Lazio is also full of spas, whose history is bound to the several thermal water springs that had great success in the Republican Age and continued to be used in the Imperial Age. The Romans built sumptuous thermal baths and we can still admire their vestiges around the territory; first of all, the Terme di Caracalla (now in a state of magnificent ruins) in the heart of Rome. Tivoli is another spa, but its fame is mainly due to the artistic beauties it contains, like Villa D'Este, with its splendid fountains, gardens and magnificent palace of the Renaissance, and Villa Adriana, the ancient residence of emperor Hadrian. The two villas are on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
For those who prefer the sea, this region offers some pearls such as Gaeta, Sabaudia, San Felice Circeo, Sperlonga and the Islands of Ponza and Ventotene, while those who love lakes will enjoy Bracciano, an enchanting stretch of water encircled by the intense green of the surrounding nature and overlooked by a magnificent 16th-Century castle. Walking along the Medieval streets of the villages by the shores of the lake, visitors can feel that these places are not only bound to the Roman Empire, but were also the theatre of various historical periods. Lake Bolsena, in the area of Viterbo, gives us an example of it, as it is the biggest volcanic lake in Europe and encloses two islands, Bisentina and Martana. This lake combines the charm of lush nature and splendid view,s with the history and traces left by the Etruscans, Romans and successive populations.
Finally, mountain lovers will not be left disappointed by Lazio, thanks to the ski resorts of Terminillo, Livata and Campo Staffi. This land evokes memories of unrivalled places and intense emotions, but also a clear perception of the relentless march of time, that justifies the attempts of our ancestors to challenge time and leave us their remembrance. The provinces of the region are: Rome (regional capital), Frosinone, Latina, Rieti and Viterbo.
'CASA BUSI' is nearby St. Mary Major Basilica, between the Esquiline and the Rione Monti.
Esquilino and Monti district are very close but very different quarters: Monti has combined the memories of the Suburra (a large and densely-populated district of ancient Rome) with fashionable places and craft workshops. Esquilino is the multiethnic heart of the city.
Esquilino is named for the Esquiline hill on which it stands. it is a vibrant neighborhood that is quickly becoming one of the hippest neighborhoods in Rome, with an international flavor and a lot of activity. There are many beautiful churches in the Esquilino district – the most famous is Santa Maria Maggiore, and Santa Croce in Gerusalemme and San Giovanni In Laterano are at the other end of the via Merulana. In between, there is the Museo Nazionale dell'Arte Orientale ( only 2 minutes walk from the apartment), showing a notable collection of Asian art, and the interesting Ex Acquario Romano, a former aquarium that sometimes is a venue for art exhibitions.
Nearby you can find several restaurants as 'Trattoria da Danilo' , 'Trattoria Morgana' , 'Trattoria Pizzeria vecchia Roma' that offer traditional roman dishes ( spaghetti carbonara, spaghetti cacio e pepe, saltimbocca , fettina panata, involtini, etc..) . But if you enjoy coffee culture, sitting outdoor, just taking a moment for yourself, with glass of a good wine, and small bites of tasty food this is the place. not miss 'Panella' , a bit pricey but worth it.
Monti is the name of one of the twelve Rioni of Rome, rione I. The name literally means mountains in Italian and comes from the fact that the Esquiline and the Viminal Hills, and parts of the Quirinal and the Caelian Hills belonged to this rione. Its logo consists of three green mountains with three tops on a silver background.
Today the main area of the Monti quarter is characterized by narrow lanes, seldom flat, that mark the pattern of a city made of tall palaces from different ages, where craftsman workshops, night clubs, art galleries find their place: it is the ancient Roman Svbvra, today Suburra (the word means ' inhabited area under the city', and this is actually the impression you have going downstairs to Piazza della Suburra from Via Cavour, in proximity of the B line metro station, or going upstairs the “Salita de' Borgia” to reach the Church of San Pietro in Vincoli, or even walking down Via Nazionale along Via dei Serpenti or Via del Boschetto... ).
This up-and-down going invites to visit the quarter on foot, privileged means to live and experience the atmosphere of one of the most appealing areas of the Capital and appreciate its archaeological monuments, starting from the Colosseum to the Ludus Magnus- the arena of gladiators - to the Domus Aurea, the Baths of Trajan, the Fora of Emperors Augustus, Nerva and Trajan with the adjacent Markets, sections of the Servian and Aurelian walls (with the Asinara gate), the Baths of Titus, the rests of the aqueduct of Claudius, the Church of San Pietro in Vincoli which houses Michelangelo's Moses, the Church of Santa Francesca Romana, the Papal Palace, the Egyptian Obelisk, the Santa Sanctorum, the Holy Stair, the Basilica of St. John in Lateran, the Church of St. Clemente, St. Martino ai Monti, the medieval Basilica of St. Mary Major, medieval vestiges as the Leonian triclinium, the Lateran Baptistry, the Church of St. Stefano Rotondo, the Conti tower, the house of the Knights of Rodi, the Church of St. Prassede, the Capocci towers and some masterpieces of the Roman baroque such as the churches of St. Andrew on the Quirinal and St. Carlino alle Quattro Fontane.
